What Do You Want Out of Church?
This is a new series within our Fall series of Walking with Christ Jesus.
We have many reasons for coming to church - though we may not know how to articulate them. We may be better able to articulate what we do not like about church.
So in these next four weeks we will be exploring four primary images of the church in the New Testament to discover what it is to be church - Body of Christ, People of God, Fellowship of Faith, and New Creation. These relate to issues of comfort and diversity, tradition and Story, Community, and being a sign of a new way of being human in the world.
This week our focus was upon discovering comfort in the diversity of being the Body of Christ
are not alone – we are with Christ, participating in the “body” of Christ – and
we are with one another – the body of Christ.
Inherent in this is comfort – because when we are “in Christ” we are not
alone – we are held together with one another by the Spirit of Christ Jesus.
